THE PRINCESS BRIDE (1987)

a:1:{i:0;s:2:"-1";}
In a story told by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his grandson (Fred Savage), a young girl, Buttercup (Robin Wright), falls in love with a farm boy, Westley (Cary Elwes), and they pledge their undying love for each other; yet, when Wesley goes missing for a number of years, the princess bride is pressured to marry another. From Reiner’s masterful direction and Goldman’s sagacious screenplay to the cast’s pitch-perfect, inspired acting, the excellent sets and cinematography, and the howlingly hilarious tone throughout, the whole is brought off with the practiced cinematic storytelling hand of one who knows just what to say and portray and how to best do so. The film remains a very powerful, engaging, and watchable one for teens and adults; Movieguide® advises caution for younger children due to some action violence, two instances of foul language, and some suggestive elements.

ENCHANTED

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
In ENCHANTED, an animated heroine is pushed down a well into the cruel, uncaring real world of New York City, where she finds her real love. ENCHANTED turns the archetypal fairy tale story inside out in a delightful, positive, morally worthwhile way.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1991)

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
Returning from architectural study in Rome, 22-year-old Annie Banks announces her engagement to a youth she met abroad. The news wreaks havoc on soon-to-be FATHER OF THE BRIDE in this updated modernization of Vincente Minnelli's 1950 MGM classic. Refreshingly, FATHER OF THE BRIDE affirms old-fashioned family values, though there is one exclamatory profanity and sexual innuendo. Aside from these flaws, FATHER OF THE BRIDE is a heart-warming father-daughter story that reflects family life in the 1990's.

THE PRINCESS DIARIES

****
Content:
+3 Some minor questionable elements. (Media-wisdom is suggested to discuss.)
THE PRINCESS DIARIES is a G-rated modern fairy tale about a teenage girl in San Francisco who finds out that she is heir to the throne of a small European nation. THE PRINCESS DIARIES is a wonderful, wholesome filmmaking gem, a movie that children and young teenagers should want to see over and over.

CHRISTIAN MINGLE

Quality:

Content:
+4 Biblical, usually Christian, worldview, with no questionable elements whatsoever.
CHRISTIAN MINGLE is a comedy about a successful advertising executive who becomes smitten by a Christian man who works at his father’s construction company. Much of CHRISTIAN MINGLE is laugh-out-loud funny. It has a great heart and a very good evangelistic message.

EVER AFTER: A CINDERELLA STORY

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)

EVER AFTER turns the classic Cinderella story into an imaginative, entertaining masterpiece without magic or fairy godmothers. Drew Barrymore and her prince charming get a little lesson on love from Leonardo da Vinci in this update of a classic. Containing a Christian worldview, it has many moral lessons and recommendable attributes.

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, an eight-year-old boy in Seattle calls up a national radio talk show on Christmas Eve to discuss his recently widowed father's problems while Annie, in Baltimore, hears the broadcast and begins to daydream about the boy's father. The film is well crafted, although not outstanding, and contains competent acting on the part of Hanks, Ryan, and, in particular, Ross Malinger, who plays eight-year-old Jonah.

ROMAN HOLIDAY

Quality:
****
Content:
+3 Some minor questionable elements. (Media-wisdom is suggested to discuss.)
While on a goodwill tour in 1950's Rome, the young Princess of England becomes tired of her duties and decides to run off for a few hours in ROMAN HOLIDAY. Audrey Hepburn Gregory Peck and star in this thoroughly enjoyable classic that is appropriate for all viewers.

EMMA

Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
Starring Gwyneth Paltrow in the title role, it tells of a social young woman who seeks to marry off her contemporaries in early 19th Century England. Emma gets in one muddle after another until she eventually finds a man for herself. Positively demonstrating Christianity and the ministry, it represents a pleasant alternative to the normal summer blockbuster.
